Jimi: All Is by My Side

Critics Consensus

It's uneven -- and it lacks the primal power of its subject's classic recordings -- but Jimi: All Is By My Side offers a well-acted alternative take on the Hendrix myth.

  • What is the point of a musician biopic if you don't get to hear the soundtrack to their life?

  • Flawed but fascinating in an off-beat, groovy, weird, wise kind of a way.

  • Benjamin conveys something of Hendrix's gentleness and charm.

    October 23, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A hip-looking mess of a movie, made tolerable by Benjamin's spacey-cool Hendrix. Great costumes, few insights.

  • Jimi: All Is by My Side is an evocative, probing, enlightening, and impressionistic look at the lesser-known period of Hendrix's life.

    October 2, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a risky approach that's bound to frustrate many folks, but it's also quite illuminating in its own way.

Audience Reviews for Jimi: All Is by My Side

  • Aug 16, 2014
    I must admit I did find this film to be pretty entertaining. John Ridley has shown he can write complex character natures especially from his Oscar winning script '12 Years a Slave'. Whilst I am also have no complaints film-wise towards the casting as well as any factual inaccuracies; the cast solidly played out their parts, the editing was sharp and did add a lot of layers to the character backstories not the mention the soundtrack was also really good. I wouldn't say this film was in any aspect inspiring let alone trying to be incredibly glamorous. This just happens to be an entertaining portrait of Jimi Hendrix and lives up to expectation as a whole without being too special.
